I'm guessing most all people on the forum here are security conscious... So, in an age where it's impossible to physically remember all your passwords/logins, how do you maintain adequate security? I don't know why, but personally I gravitate away from password vault style computer apps/programs. I guess I feel that by using one, I would be jumping on a platform that hackers specifically target, and that would carry inherent security risks. I have been accustomed to keeping a word 2007 doc (SHA-1, 128 bit key, stretched 50,000 times), but there again, word encryption is targeted by hackers too, though I think at present, brute force is the only way of cracking it. I have been thinking of switching to the open source EncryptPad (AES-256, SHA-512, 1,000,000 iterations), but it seems a relatively small endeavor, written by one software engineer & it's untested territory, I don't think anyone knows for sure if his code has no chinks. My personal preference is for keeping login credentials on a removable device, and protecting each file on that device with a password... Any suggestions? I'd love to hear how others store their credentials etc. thanks!
